Valentino Rossi bemoans new Bridgestone tyre direction

Valentino Rossi says he is mystified why a new range of Bridgestone rear tyres will be introduced for the 2014 MotoGP world championship. The Italian spent the majority of the opening day of the second test in Sepang working on the set-up of his factory Yamaha YZR-M1 to work with the new generation Bridgestone tyres. A stiffer construction to help with temperature...

 In the traffic? Would explain why you're so slow. Let me guess, why are people still talking so much manure if the information is so widely available? 

So people can't use the rear brake to settle or back steer a bike because you read a book written by someone i never eared of before? Let me guess, he won several 500/Moto GP titles did he?

Well he should go and tell Rossi/Marquez before they hurt themselves, original, most interesting is you chose to believe him rather than looking at the real life.

Or maybe it's just me.

ps the stupid **** is capable of using both brakes, manage weight transfer and explain how.

 Funny you are emulating me asking the question isn't it?

I don't have the pretention to know everything but what i write most of the time i experienced it and i have learned more then basic M-C mechanic principles, which is a lot more than your bunch can claim reading your posts.

Again; you posted this comment on "impartial PoV" which was hilariously funny, while your bunch couldn't even imagine sliding a bike on the rear brake, LOL!

Happened to me firt time out on a 125, i still didn't crash, the front though is another story, that's how you learn about chassis. But not you.

 No i'm not impressed; i pasted links to this school week ago mentioning the back wheel steering technique they teach on the gas.

But if this guy go and tell people  not to use the rear brake or else they'll crash, it's just as well i didn't splash any dosh in his school because i was doing it without crashing, including sliding the bike that is.

And if you hadn't a pile of shrite between the ear you'd have noticed Rossi used this rear brake to turn the bike as does Marquez.

 Now there is no contest who is the fastest between these two and your book writer, and in the case of Marquez, where he might have learned that.

But of course i'm sure you know he went to visit Roberts Ranch in Barcelona more often than not.

When i want an opinion, i know where to ask, cheers.

 Yeah sure granpa.  Keith Codes is certainly faster than Roberts, Rossi and Marquez. Is he now? He trained and taught Lawson, Rainey and a lot of other champs including Marquez did he?

What did i say about the material between your ears?

As  i said when i want an opinion i know where to ask, and btw there is a racing school at Carol near Paris, went there and done that, the rest i learned myself and i'm sorry to disappoint, i didn't know one couldn't use the rear brake or else would rash, reason why i was doing it without crashing, so did Roberts, so does Rossi  so does Marquez.

I'm none of them but neither is  Keith Codes, so i'll stick to the fastest guy opinion if you don't mind.

DeGrasshole, when did Casey and Mick visit the Roberts Ranch?

I don't recall reading it anywhere but I'm sure you can copy and paste the story?

Thanks.

 The 2013 tyre was perfectly ok for everybody on all tracks, apart from one race. So why does everybody now have to get used to a completly different tyre for the sake of one race.  Why don't they just specify that the 2014 tyre has to be used at certain venues when the temperature reaches a certain point.
